Sunday morning, July 23, Portsmouth’s First Lutheran Church rededicated the Cross on the front of the building. The congregation sang “Beneath the Cross of Jesus;” while the large Christian symbol was being raised by J.M. Painting and Maintenance. Mark Seiling spent twenty hours cleaning and polishing the Cross. First Lutheran Church welcomes all visitors at the weekly 10:30 a.m. service. Located at the corner of Grandview Avenue and Grant Street, the congregation hope the Cross will be an inspiration to all who see it.
